Becoming a Trusted Servant Leader

“Why are you leading? Is it to serve, or be served?” When bestselling business author Ken Blanchard asks this question during seminars, people always confirm that good leadership means serving others. But what keeps people from putting good ideas into use?

“I think leaders try to take on too many things at the same time,” says Blanchard. “Keeping your commitment to your commitment is the toughest thing. A lot of people say, ‘That’s a great idea. I'm going to do that,’ but then they move on to other things.”

Helping people turn their good intentions into new leadership habits is one of the goals Blanchard set out to address with coauthor Randy Conley in their new book, Simple Truths of Leadership: 52 Ways to Be a Servant Leader and Build Trust.

“We wrote this book because we know a lot of people aren’t applying commonsense leadership principles in the workplace,” says Conley.
